Jack: As a Retired Canadian Soldier with a Son who has done two tours in the Mid-East and a Nephew in training I am sorrowly disappointed in CNN's reporting of Canadian's killed in Afghanistan Coining them simply Nato troops has only reinforced the ignorance that Canada is even involved in combat. To date we are losing around a soldier a week in the Afghanistan and have led the way during Operation Medusa in which approximately 500+ Taliban were defeated or killed. The way your news agency reports it we aren't even there. How about you folks look outside your borders long enough to let the world know that our young men and women are indeed making the ultimate sacrifice in the war on terror.
If you can do it for the British Brothers in arms I think a kudos might be in order for your allies to the North.
